Coshocton County Emergency Operations Plan
EVACUATION and TRANSPORTATION
I.
PURPOSE
The purpose of this annex is to document the plan for safe and orderly evacuation of people
threatened by an emergency or disaster situation in Coshocton County.
II.
SITUATION and ASSUMPTIONS
SITUATION
1. Emergency conditions could occur in Coshocton County from natural disasters (tornadoes,
flooding, fires, or other natural events), from hazardous materials that are used, stored,
produced, or transported in the county, and nuclear events. Any one of these conditions
could require the need for an evacuation of residents.
2. There are populated areas within Coshocton County that are in close proximity to facilities
using or storing hazardous materials. The residents near these facilities may have to be
evacuated in the event of a hazardous materials incident. Maps of these locations are part of
the Coshocton County Hazardous Materials Plan.
3. The Ohio Revised Code authorizes law enforcement and fire departments the power to
protect the lives and property of the citizens in their jurisdiction. Therefore, the Coshocton
County Sheriff, West Lafayette Police Chief, and the Chiefs of the Fire Departments are
empowered to determine the need and to order evacuations during emergencies.
4. In Coshocton County, when time allows, all evacuation orders will be coordinated with the
County Commissioners, Mayors or Township Trustees of the affected jurisdiction and the
Emergency Management Director before they are released to the public.
ASSUMPTIONS
Assumptions need to be made on probable operational situations under disaster/emergency
conditions.
1. Residents, who live in an area at risk and have sufficient warning time to evacuate, and have
the means to do so, will evacuate on their own after notification from authorities.
2. With advanced warning, fifty percent (50%) or more of the residents may spontaneously
evacuate a threatened jurisdiction before an evacuation order is given.
3. County emergency safety personnel will assist those in need of assistance.
4. Some residences will refuse to evacuate regardless of the threat.
5. Many residents with pets will refuse to evacuate unless arrangements have been made to
care for their animals.
6. The evacuation of county residents to an adjacent county will be done in coordination with
the Coshocton County EMA Director and the host county EMA Director.
7. It is estimated that about twenty percent (20%) of the population at risk will take advantage
of sheltering in a mass care facility. From other evacuations that have occurred in the State
of Ohio, it has been demonstrated that a majority of the people who need to evacuate their
Annex E - Evacuation and Transportation 2011
-1-
Coshocton County Emergency Operations Plan
EVACUATION and TRANSPORTATION
home, seek shelter with relatives, friends, or motels rather than use provided mass-care
centers.
8. While evacuations in the county have been minimal, it is possible that a future disaster /
emergency could cause a large evacuation and planning for a large-scale evacuation is part
of the preparation.
9. According to the Highway Capacity Manual referenced in FEMA CPG 2-1 5, the following
capacity for an ideal evacuation movement is:
1,200 vehicles / hr.
2,000 vehicles / hr.
two lane undivided rural roads
per hour, per lane in multi-lane rural highways with two or more lanes
in each direction
2,400 vehicles / hr.
per hour, per lane in multi-lane divided freeways or expressways with
limited access.
10. Emergency public information will be released to evacuees telling them where public
shelters are located. Routes that are restricted due to the emergency will be identified.
11. The activated EOC will work to schedule school buses and / or other transportation for
residents without vehicles.
12. Assembly points where evacuees may board buses will be announced by radio and/or bull
horns in the affected areas.
13. In an immediate danger situation, the sheriff’s department and fire personnel may force
unwilling persons to evacuate (reference: Ohio Attorney General Opinion #87-099). EMS
and REACT personnel may assist under the direction of the sheriff or fire personnel.
14. If the sheriff, fire, EMS or REACT personnel choose to not forcibly evacuate any unwilling
adult (believed to be of sound mind), they must document the refusal to evacuate by listing
names, addresses, date and time of refusal. Telephone numbers of the next-of-kin is also
beneficial for notification purposes.
15. Evacuation of people at risk for emergency situations that occur with little or no warning will
be implemented on an ad hoc basis. The individual responsible for implementing this
should be the Incident Commander at the scene of the emergency with support arranged
through the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) as necessary. Evacuation instructions
will be based on known or assumed health risks associated for whatever hazard caused the
evacuation.
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
There are facilities in Coshocton County with Extremely Hazardous Substances (EHS). Most of
these facilities are located within populated areas among other industries and businesses.
Depending on the time of day, the day of the week, etc., the number of people who may need
evacuated would vary.
Sheltering-in-place can also be utilized if appropriate for the incident.
Annex E - Evacuation and Transportation 2011

Coshocton County Emergency Operations Plan
EVACUATION and TRANSPORTATION
FLOODING – Areas located along the Muskingum, Tuscarawas and Walhonding Rivers, and
other creeks and streams in the county that routinely flood after heavy rainfall are located in
non-populated areas, and citizens in these areas know the danger. The majority of these
people know when and how to get out due to the frequency of flooding in those areas, and know
where they will be going without the assistance of county government.
The area in Coshocton County that is subject to the greatest damage from flooding is the area
in Coshocton between 2nd Street and the Muskingum River. Detailed evacuation plans for this
area are listed in Tab 2.
Refer to Annex L for more information on flooding.
TORNADOES - While Coshocton County has not had any significant tornado activity for years,
a tornado with a major magnitude could occur.
Due to the lack of time and the unknown of an exact location pre-tornado evacuation is not a
standard practice. The instructions are to go to a safe location at once.
Tornadoes destroy homes and property as they pass and evacuating is not as necessary as
insuring the victims are safe from the debris remaining.
As tornadoes leave debris everywhere, this can hamper emergency personnel responding to
the area with assistance.
In the past, severe thunderstorm damage left many trees down, houses damaged from fallen
trees, and some families have had to leave their homes until the homes were repaired. Shelters
have not been necessary and the affected families knew the evacuation route to their temporary
residence.
Refer to Annex L-B for more information on tornadoes.
III. CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS

I.
Evacuation in Response to Threat of CBRN Attack
PURPOSE
This appendix provides procedures for an evacuation due to an attack or attack threat using
nuclear, biological or chemical weapons.
II.
SITUATION and ASSUMPTIONS
SITUATION
1.
Potential enemies of the United States have the capability to launch an attack on the United
States with sufficient weapons to strike a high proportion of our industrial, military, and
population areas.
2.
Two options are available for protecting the population from the effects of attack:
a.
If a period of increasing tension and deteriorating relations precedes an attack,
population relocation may be initiated to remove the population from a target or risk
area and relocate it in a safer host area. This will prevent the population from receiving
the direct effects from the attack and it will allow for essential services and production
capabilities to be maintained. It is anticipated an attack on the United States would
most likely be preceded by such a crisis period allowing sufficient time for crisis
relocation to take place.
b.
If an attack appears imminent or has already occurred, another option is in-place
sheltering. Immediate shielding from the direct effects of the attack offers some
protection. This may occur in private homes or other buildings or in designated
community fallout shelters.
3.
If the entire area of Coshocton County is considered a low risk area, in-place sheltering
should be employed in the entire county.
4.
Certain vital facilities and activities must be continued to preserve the county, to assist in
relocating essential goods and services to the relocated population, and/or continue
industrial production important to the economy.
5.
Coshocton County has been designated as a host county should a crisis occur and
relocation is implemented. Most likely, these evacuees will be arriving from metropolitan
areas of the state. See Tab 4 for details (under development)
III. CONCEPT OF OPERATION
1.
Pre-Crisis Phase - normal readiness during peacetime.
2.
Crisis Phase - includes increased readiness and mobilization of emergency services, if and
when ordered by the Governor.
3.
Movement Phase - begins when the Governor of Ohio orders evacuation of high-hazards
areas.
Phase 1 - Public with vehicles
Phase 2 - Public needing transportation special needs population
Phase 3 - Movement of resources and essential workers
Annex E - Evacuation and Transportation 2011
-8-
Coshocton County Emergency Operations Plan
EVACUATION and TRANSPORTATION
4.
Sustaining Period - begins with arrival of evacuees in reception areas and involves support
and care of evacuees. This phase includes maintenance and support of critical production
and service activities by essential personnel commuting to and from high-hazard area.
Relocatees will self-manage in host areas.
5.
Return Phase - begins when ordered by the Governor and covers the time necessary to
safely move the population back to their homes.
B.
Notification and Mobilization
Notice of an enemy attack and consequent emergency response mobilization is initiated
nationally. State government will forward this notification to local government utilizing a system,
which determines appropriate actions that must be taken. The county EMA will activate the
EOC.
C. In-Place Sheltering
In-place sheltering may be the necessary option to be implemented even if crisis relocation has
been previously implemented. In-place sheltering will allow for protection from radioactive
fallout. In-place sheltering will be implemented through a combination of improved or expedient
shelters, and assigned community fallout shelters.
D. Key Workers
Each jurisdiction will be responsible for designating key workers to ensure continuity of
government and for preservation of records. Each industry within the township will be
responsible for designating key workers to ensure industrial productivity, and the relocation of
essential goods and services needed in the safe areas.
Key workers will commute from a safe-area to their place of employment. Key workers will be
identified by an identification card supplied by their employers.
Once all residents have been evacuated from risk areas, buses will be available to transport key
workers if necessary. Risk and close-in host areas should assure that any non-essential key
workers from the risk area return to their close-in host area. Ensure that essential workers are
knowledgeable of their shelter assignments in the risk area.
E.
Evacuation Information
The residents will receive information concerning evacuation routes, essential items to take with
them, and the destination shelter.
F.
Resources
Extra resources will be requested / provided from the risk area to support accelerated host area
operations. If crisis relocation is ordered, resources left in the risk area for protection of life and
property will be transferred to the host areas for preservation if an attack occurs and to assist
the host areas’ expanded populations.

IV. ORGANIZATION AND ASSIGNMENT OF RESPONSIBILITIES
In the event of a national security emergency, all emergency response groups within each
jurisdiction will be activated. Responsibilities of each agency, department, and organization in
this region will be as shown in the Evacuation Annex or other parts of this plan.
V.
DIRECTION AND CONTROL
Direction and Control will follow those procedures outlined in Annex A (Direction and Control).
VI. CONTINUITY OF GOVERNMENT
When it becomes necessary to evacuate, the seat of government will not relocate until all
residents have been evacuated, all essential resources and equipment have been relocated,
and all key workers in government and industry have been established their operations.
VII. ADMINISTRATION AND LOGISTICS

EVACUATION and TRANSPORTATION
Tab 2
Evacuation of Coshocton 2nd Street to the Muskingum River Area
A. INTRODUCTION
This Tab addresses the specific procedures and actions required to effect a successful
evacuation of the area covered. This plan is to reduce to a minimum, the personnel loss due to
injury or death to residents in the affected area.
B. AREA ADDRESSED
The specific area addressed in this Tab is that area between the Muskingum River and South
2nd Street in the City of Coshocton.
C. EVENT ADDRESSED
The event addressed is rising water in the Muskingum River that is projected to or does
overflow the river bank in this area. This is expected to occur at a river level, at the Coshocton
river gauge, between 19.3 and 19.5 feet..
D. MONITORING OF CONDITIONS
Monitoring of the river level and weather conditions will be accomplished by the following steps
and for the following parameters:
1.
Muskingum River at the Coshocton gauging station. The web site should be monitored
when the river is at 18 feet and is expected to rise. This is best accomplished by monitoring
the following web site:
http://newweb.erh.noaa.gov/ahps2/index.php?wfo=pbz
2.
When the Muskingum is at 19 feet and is expected to rise and reach above flood stage for
thissection of the river, additional monitoring of the following inflows to Muskingum River
drainage area will begin:
Killbuck Creek
Walhonding River
Tuscarawas River
3. When conditions are identified that indicates the Muskingum River will continue to rise and
is projected to reach the level of 19 feet or higher, flood watch / warning will be provided to
the public.
E. PUBLIC NOTICE
There are three (3) levels of public notice that will be used:
1.
Warning
Warnings will be posted to the public, when the Muskingum River as measured at the
Coshocton gauge station, indicates that the river level is increasing and there is a possibility
that within 12 to 24 hours water will reach the flood level for this area.
2.
Voluntary Evacuation
Evacuation notices will be posted when the Muskingum River, as measured at the
Coshocton gauge station, indicates that the river level is increasing and within 2 to 4 hours
will overflow into the area.
3.
Required Evacuation
Required Evacuation notices will be posted when the Muskingum River as measured at the
Coshocton gauge station indicates that the river level is increasing and will overflow into the
Annex E - Evacuation and Transportation 2011
- 12 -
Coshocton County Emergency Operations Plan
EVACUATION and TRANSPORTATION
area with enough force to cause damage to buildings and later evacuations will require
special equipment and place responders in harms way.
F. TRANSPORTATION
There are specific requirements for each of the three (3) notice phases in E above:
1.
Warning
At this stage of warning, a count will be made to determine approximately how many people
will need to be evacuated and where they will be moved to for initial safety. With this data,
transportation sources will be contacted and placed on notice of potential need and to stand
by.
2.
Voluntary Evacuation
At this stage of warning, the transportation units placed on stand-by will be directed to
report to a location just outside the danger zone. From the staging area, they will be sent to
specific pickup points that were identified in the public notice for evacuation.
3.
Required Evacuation
Transportation needs for this stage of evacuation should not require additional equipment
as the number of people requiring forced evacuation should be less due to voluntary
evacuation by many.
G. SHELTERING
Sheltering requirements will also follow the three (3) warning phases:
1.
Warning
At this stage, an estimate of the number requiring evacuation has been determined and the
Coshocton Chapter of American Red Cross will be notified of this number and a joint
determination will be made of how many will take advantage of shelters. The Red Cross
should identify the location of shelters that could be opened and place the shelter staffs on
standby notice.
2.
Voluntary Evacuation
At this stage the Red Cross decides the location of shelters that will open and media will
announce the shelters are available and describe the best routes to the shelters.
3.
Required Evacuation
At this stage there should be few additional people in addition to the ones already evacuated
and would not plan to open additional shelters until the current open shelters have reached
their capacity.
